I thought I would add an update or two to this thread.

Quite by accident I was able to get as close to a 'layer' effect as possible with MS PAINT! I created the sky background, then I created the character image leaving the background white (uncolored). I copied and pasted the image and used the 'transparent button as I pasted the image over the background. It needed a little touching up - and I did have a bizarre problem trying to save it (got through that one, too!) and created the final image without having to color the sky first, then clean up the lines where I might have 'oooopsed!' and then color the figures in.
